WHO WE ARE
The Center for Public Safety and Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago (CPSJ) was founded in 1997 as one of the original Regional Community Policing Institutes created through the establishment of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) within the U.S. Department of Justice. The original charge of CPSJ was to expand the understanding and application of community policing and problem solving techniques used by law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. CPSJ continues to honor its origins in community policing through its portfolio of trainings, services and research projects to further this mission.
Procedural Justice Training
Courses are facilitated by highly qualified two-person tea
ms, bringing the perspective of executive level law enforcement and an allied professional.

The movement from a community reaction of “that’s not fair” to “I understand” may begin within the individual police officer-community member interaction, but is more often rooted in the deeper culture of
the law enforcement agency.
